    The biggest reason you might want to get an Imbel is so your Imbel kit will be all Imbel. Other than that a DSA is pretty nice. I just built an STG58 on a Entreprise and it went real well. It is a type 1 receiver and has the STG58 stamped on the side so it looks pretty nice. To each there own though and I'm sure some won't like the Entreprise no matter what. Just my .02

    I'd go along with what Radkoch pointed out. Even though the build will still be basically a "parts gun", having all Imbel parts (minus the min US ones) will be a plus in some circles.

    A few years from now, the DSA receivers and other US made ones will still be around, but Imbels will be rare and sought after by those wanting an all Imbel gun. Just something to keep in mind.

    I got two more Imbel receivers from Classic when they got them in a month or so back. They both looked as good as the others I've purchased over the years. Wish I had gone for four now.

    would I find a Imbel receiver faster by posting WTB or does someone know somebody that has an extra one?

    Post a WTB over at the Fal Files. That's probably your best bet.

    Well I contacted DSA today and was told they no longer offer type III receivers, only type I and IIs!

    Gone are the days when you could call FAC and order an Imbel gear logo receiver for $179. Wish I had bought a gross of them then.

    DaFixer, you can build that kit on any FAL receiver be it a type I, II, or III. It's just a cosmetic difference you'll see where the upper receiver meets the lower receiver and it's not that obvious.

    All of my kits right now were meant for type I or II receivers.

    There's still hope. Entreprise makes a type III and who knows, perhaps DCI will come out with one, but I think their focus is just the type I.

    I can only say that my imbel built on an imbel rec. went together very easy w/no massaging other than re-timing the bbl.But that was three years ago,when imbel receivers were easy to come by.I've seen imbels built on dsa recs. and was very impressed.

    Any recommendations for where to pick up a DSA receiver or is getting one through them the best bet?
